    Biography: Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. We had a darkroom in the house when I was growing up, so I learned to develop black & white photos at a very early age. That led me to shoot for our local newspaper (The Punxsutawney Spirit) while I was in high school and college, and I still shoot Steelers games for them today.

    Nowadays, I shoot a lot of senior portraits, local high school sports/band/musical groups, and I do some freelance work for the Beaver County Times and Reuters News Agency.

    I am an avid Geocacher, and I have a passion for travel (I've been to all 50 states, and several other countries... like "Cleveland").


    - February 7, 2007: A shot of mine (a head shot of one of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club members) was in The Wall Street Journal.

    - July 2006: A photo of mine (originally a DPC entry) appeared in an advertisement for Chevy. The ad appeared in Sports Illustrated, USA Today and the Major League All-Star Game program. It also ran in a Chevy TV ad on FOX and ESPN.

    - May 2004: A shot of mine appeared in People magazine (of Rob & Amber Mariano, of The Amazing Race and Survivor fame).

    - I have had other photos that have appeared on CBS, HGTV, The Weather Channel, Highlights for Children and numerous other publications.
